    He probably crapped his pants, at that point he didn't care anymore.

    Nico, you have put way worse videos on here and commanded us to enjoy them. I think it's pretty good, except he uses the wrong finger at the end:fingersx::fingersx::fingersx:

    I wouldn't buy this this for 3k. Don't know the history of it but between the sweaty shred demon and the sketchy serial number story, I wouldn't even consider it if I had close to that kind of money.

    Just the fact that his sweaty body touched it I wouldn't buy it. Now if it was Jimmy Pages sweat then thats another story, which would make me look past the missing serial.

    I don't understand some comments about the guitar.
    I can understand that some people doesn't like the top very flamey.
    You can find other videos with the guitar that Kim made and it is sounding great.
    The guitar is an original 60 burst with ALL original part, no break.
    The small issue are SN lost and the top which has been slightely sanded.
    The guitar was owned previously in Canada and was sold by a burst expert.
    The neck is not the skinny neck with late 60 burst. It is transitional neck just after the medium size 59 neck.
    I have been looking for the last 6 months to buy an original burst, I have been in contact with several sellers, collectors and when I see the market price and this one, it is a good deal in my opinion.
    Just to clarify I have no interest with the guitar.

    I have no idea how much this guitar might bring at auction. The really interesting question for me would be whether the seller will be able to recoup the additional investment (refin and serial number fix by Historic Makeovers).
    That guitar already looked killer before Kim got it, IMHO.

    I talked to the seller about price and he will loose money on the guitar.

    fly downunder, buy it, take it home. The price is nice with the actual conversion rate vs. the Euro, the guitar is well documented. It came from Steve Seagul from Canada IIRC and was refinished by HM.

    Great looking guitar

    I like the guitar in the background, a CF-100. I have wanted one for years.

    Jean granted I am sure you know more about Vintage pricing than I do but you can't say the lost SN, sanded top & for that matter a refin is a small issue when it comes to original Bursts. The fact that Steven Seagal owned this does not add any value IMHO. It is a Burst not a movie.

    As you probably know, there have been quite a few unmolested Bursts for sale over the last 1 - 2 years for around $150,000 (advertised price). What they sold for I am not 100% sure of but that sets a benchmark for other Guitars that have issues (even though these issues may not impact the playability & tone etc.).

    Now sure enough a player grade is another story, but they also sell for way less.

    My 2c FWIW. :)

    Cheers, Rudi

    That guitar has been sold in 24 hours.....
    to get an idea 1/3 of the market price today for a burst.
    For me, it was a good entry level to play a burst.
    I missed that one for 5k :eek:(

    I don't know where Jean Cristophe is located but if it is Europe, we are looking at Burst prices of around 240 k USD. You saw this one here, I'm sure: 1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard - Sunburst (early ยด60s)-Vi60GiLPStd91930

    With the closed holes on the top from a removed trem arm, rest looks original. Now the Burst in question was only 40% of that and that wozuld be a good price here in Europe. Seems to have sold anyway, so price was right

    When I said market price, I said US market, not price in Europe.
    That 60 refin was cheap.
    Guitar point have several burst for sell, but their price are insane !!
    I tried to discuss the price of the 58 burst they are selling (I am in love), no way to decrease the price. That guitar has been for sell for more than 2 years and that 60 refin gone in 24 hours...

    It was previously owned by Steve Segal (the Canadian musician/collector), not Steven Seagal the actor Rudi.

    Btw a deposit was taken on this '60 burst today.
